§ 52. Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Lord Privy Seal when he expects to achieve disbursements of official development aid at a level equal to 0.7 per cent. of gross national product.
§ Mr. Neil Marten
We continue to accept in principle the 0.7 per cent. of GNP aid target, but we are not committed to a timetable for reaching it. Successive governments have made it clear that progress must depend on our own economic conditions and on other calls on our resources.15W
